Overview

The POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is the first and only museum dedicated to restoring the memory of the civilization created by Polish Jews in the course of a millennium.Museum's building faces the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes in Warsaw. The Museum completes the memorial complex. At the monument, we honor those who perished by remembering how they died. At the museum, we honor them, and those who came before and after, by remembering how they lived. As a museum of life, POLIN Museum engages with the present and opens out to the future. As an educational and cultural institution, the museum is dedicated to stimulating dialogue in the spirit of mutual understanding and respect. Museum's core exhibition is a journey through the 1000-year history of Polish Jews. Enter this theater of history where the story unfolds in acts and scenes as you walk. Immerse yourself in the story. Encounter those who lived in each period - their words are quoted throughout the exhibition. Enter the scene - a salon, tavern, home, church, synagogue, or schoolroom. There are surprises in drawers you can open, screens and objects you can touch, and much that you can see - artifacts, photographs, documents, and films. Each visit to the museum will be different. There will always be something new to inspire you!

This museum had a really good lay out, and you walk through the history up to modern day. Lots of information and a great place to learn more about the history of Jewish people in Poland.

When I got to the end of the walk through this museum, I looked at my watch and realised it had taken me over 4 hours to just go through the core exhibit. Very interesting story.

We visited this museum on our last day in Warsaw, after learning a lot of history through the city tour, but nothing compares to the amount of information in this museum. We planned three hours but it took closer to 4 hours to get through....More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Warsaw. I wish all museums were this brilliantly thought out. Very informative and moving. We had a guide who definitely knew how to highlight all important parts during our 2-hour-visit. Highly recommendable!

This is one of the best museums in Warsaw. It offers an engaging and persuasive core exhibition without a substantial collection of artefacts presenting living memory of Jews in Poland. What is most appealing that it traces the history from the earliest recorded migration to...More

Interesting and rewarding museum. Highly recommend the guided tours. Ask for Kataryna (apologise for spelling), she was very talented and knowledgeable. Highly recommend a visit for those interested in Polish and its Jewish history.

No we just walked around soaking it all in and reading the notes at each exhibit. The water fountain display at night in the multi media park is good in Warsaw. Rising museum is a must, Central Park. There is so much history... More
